As per reported by the Hindustan Times, Dr. R N Singh, a pediatrician, said:

“Insufficient homework was done to control the outspread of AES in January, and thereafter the entire machinery remained busy in the UP elections. Secondly, heavy monsoon also accounts for a large number of cases among children.”

Meanwhile, the news coincided with the former principal of the government (Dr. Rajiv Mishra)- run BRD medical college in Gorakhpur Rajiv Mishra and his wife (Purnima Shukla) were arrested from Kanpur in connection with the death of over 60 children admitted between August 7 and 11.
